*Future construction based on availability of funds.
Commemorative opportunities are available throughout the campus (i.e. general classrooms and laboratories). Donors will be recognized appropriately with a plaque.

According to the University’s Naming Policy, all permanently named buildings and grounds and associated amounts must be approved by the University president and Board of Governors. This list is subject to change.

Payment schedules for naming pledges will be negotiated on a case-by-case basis; however, at least 50 percent of the donor’s pledge must be received before a naming request is presented to the Board of Governors for final approval.
